L-R: On a table w/6" tiles, a Cherokee Bowie, a Cold Steel Trailmaster Bowie I re-handled in Ebony after tossing the issue rubber handle, a found Imperial Bowie blade I handled after adding a brass cross-guard, & an unknown/found Arkansas Toothpick I handled in Ebony - with 3 self-made sheaths (the CS sheath is issue)

Also, I sew up possibles bags & make powder horns.

BOY ! Have I ever been asleep at the switch ! :oops:

I have to apologize for not being timely in replying to your post, WH. :(

That knife is a 5" Green River Hunter (pattern) that I handled in Curly Maple, with red, black & copper spacers.

The plain sheath is one I made from some tanned/dyed leather I have.

I have edited & labelled the pics in my OP - thanks for the heads-up.
